Among the teams were the top ranked sides from Grey High School, Pearson and Kingswood College. After two days of exciting and competitive water polo which produced some stunning play, there were only two teams remaining, Grey High and Pearson.

The First Teams of Pearson and Grey had played near flawless water polo during the tournament and it promised to be a memorable final between two powerful teams. Grey High, who are ranked 3rd in South Africa) had their reputation on the line as they faced a courageous Pearson side who had match after match punched above their weight.
